I am trying to find a solution to get this done.

I have a Macbook Pro with Emby Server Installed.
I need to setup my server to connect my QNAP NAS.

When I setup the server, and use my emby username or email to connect to my Emby NAS server.
For some reason, I am not able to see my library, and my server looks empty.

Am I missing something?

yes, proper permissions on your NAS.  emby needs at least read access to the files.

What path did you add into emby server?

 

I didn't ask for any path when I setup the server. I just gave my emby user name which I used to sign in on my NAS and mobile app. 

 

In the emby dashboard on my MAC;

The 'Remote (WAN) access:' IP address was similar to my Emby on my NAS.

The 'In-Home (LAN) access:' IP was different from my NAS which I override on the 'network' menu on my 'server' menu.

 

Please let me know if you need more details.

I am using Emby on my mobile phone which is working well. If the permission is not correct, this too will have issue I belive.

So you're saying the Emby web app shows no content, but the android app does?
